I didn’t watch the Gilda Radner TV-movie last night, as I was forewarned about how heinous it was. But I love Gilda, so I did watch the clip-show at 8:00. Yikes!
FIRST. We do NOT want to see Baba Wawa and Lilly Tomlin and Kermit the fucking Frog go on for ten minutes about how wonderful Gilda Radner was. It’s a clip show: we want to see CLIPS! They never showed a whole sketch, just tiny snippets, because the airtime was taken up with Eugene Levy reminiscing about Gilda singing “Zippity-Doo-Dah.”
SECOND. What the HELL has Steve Martin done to his face? He looks like a startled, elderly Asian woman! Unless he is on some kind of life-sustaining drug, I can only assume he has had a REALLY bad facelift. For some reason, I’d thought better of him . . .
